A look at what makes this the most high-tech Super Bowl to date

Culture
Super Bowl 50 will be played in the heart of Silicon Valley. And the pressures on to live up to areas high tech reputation. Luckily, it's being hosted at Levi Stadium. The most high tech football stadium ever built. With 400 miles of cables, almost 700 security cameras and a wi-fi box under every 100 seats. So, you coupled the Wi-Fi infrastructure with our DAS system, our Distributor Antenna System where all five mobile carriers are on that system. We feel like we can get 70,000 people whether it's beyond Wi-Fi or cellular to be able to use their phone. For the first time for a Superbowl CBS, the parent company of CNET, will incorporate 8 pylons containing 16 cameras in the end zones. The field selfie camera that looks back at a wide receiver who's about to break the plane of the goal line. And there are upgrades to the 36 camera replay system. Called iVision 360 that lets CBS freeze and rotate the images. On the sidelines teams will be using Microsoft Surface Tablets to look over plays despite trouble with the system during the AFC Championship game. We will have Microsoft services in place on both sidelines. In the stands fans can tap the Super Bowl 50 app to order food for pick up and have drinks delivered to their seats. Even fans not going to the big game can have a hi-tech football experience with interactive games and exhibits at the NFL Experience and Super Bowl City. It was amazing. There's a 40-yard dash where you race against a virtual player and a photo booth that transforms your picture into a Hall of Fame bust. Fans were also seeing football in a whole new way with 3D virtual reality. Use the ability to be literally standing on the line of scrimmage on the sideline of the field, and have the experience of being there for the entire game. Technology brings fans even closer to the action. In San Fransisco, Brian Tong, CNET.com for CBS News.
